Industry & Educational Testimonials

Read what teachers and industry professionals have to say about SCC, and our state-of-the-business sports and entertainment marketing curriculum:
"We are all aware of the challenges facing traditional school in helping people have all the skills they need for the workplace. Fortunately, companies like Sports Career Consulting have figured out a way to help teachers connect with today’s students by creating new and creative ways to capture their attention. SCC’s education programs are wonderful and are making an impact!"

“I like the fact that Sports Career Consulting’s programs involve all aspects of sports business, rather than only focusing on one element of the industry. Kids deserve to gain exposure to the industry as a whole and I think that’s what these programs do.”

“Any time I talk with an educator who is teaching marketing at the high school level I always encourage them to check out Sports Career Consulting. From the weekly current events, up-to-date curriculum, real world connections, and access to numerous engaging lesson plans and activities, the material is incredibly valuable. However, what I love most is that Chris is always willing to assist in any way possible to help enhance the experience for our students. I know my students always enjoy hearing him talk during our virtual guest speaking events and learn a lot from Chris about not only finding success in the sports industry but also in life!”

“Sports and entertainment marketing has matured into a multi-billion dollar industry, spawning an entire course of study at the collegiate level. As such, our industry is now at a crossroads, with the very real need for high school students to learn the fundamentals prior to their matriculation into university sports and entertainment marketing programs and, ultimately, their careers. SCC’s Sports Business Program provides a unique, experiential learning opportunity for high schools and their business education and marketing students to do just that. As an added benefit, the program also offers a means for schools to generate much-needed revenue in the process; I can’t think of any other academic programs that offer such a direct return-on-investment. I’d encourage all high schools that are serious about their sports and entertainment programs to adopt the Sports Business Program…and start filling their stands right away!”

“Our Sports and Entertainment Marketing class was a great improvement over the Retail Marketing course I previously taught - the subject matter and curriculum was much more exciting for our students and very engaging. Between sports and entertainment topics, news and current events, there was always something to discuss and interest every student. I had less prep time and plenty of resources to last the whole year. We integrated both of SCC’s programs to help us manage some great experiential learning opportunities for our students, such as working gates at games, designing flyers and programs for plays and tournaments, and selling t-shirts for football. The best part is the flexibility the programs provide - you can pick and choose how much of the curriculum you want to use.”

“I teach a Sports & Entertainment Marketing class and use the materials and curriculum provided by Sports Career Consulting. The weekly online newsletters provide me with stimulating discussion topics that I use in my classes daily. The curriculum is better than anything I have found from any publisher because it is relevant and well developed. SCC’s willingness to assist me in any way with my class has been outstanding. Chris has gone the extra mile by participating in several conference calls with my class in order to discuss different sports related issues. They loved it! I would highly recommend this curriculum to anyone who is seeking applicable material for their class.”
